Mayor Raymond Giacobbe and the Rahway City Council would like to remind all residents that COVID-19 vaccinations are available every Thursday from 3:00pm-6:00pm at the Rahway Senior Center, located at 1306 Esterbrook Avenue. To date, more than 7,500 Rahway residents have been vaccinated.

Our Covid-19 Clinic is currently providing first doses and second doses of Moderna vaccine for everyone 18 and over as well as the 3rd doses for the immunocompromised.  No proof of immunosuppression required.

The City of Rahway is now offering free Covid testing which is available in a trailer located in the City Hall Plaza parking lot. The trailer will be situated near the entrance to the Recreation Center. Testing is available on Mondays from 8:00am to 6:00pm, Tuesday through Friday from 9:00am to 6:00pm, and Saturdays from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Pre-registration is not required, but is available at https://testnj.online/.

Practices such as hand washing, social distancing, and wearing masks when social distancing is not possible have all helped in our fight against the virus. However, vaccination is the key to ultimately defeating the disease.
